|Did Andrew Coburn practice deception under oath?|
more analysis on "Making a Murderer", including the DA Ken Kratz references to water, including his use of 'sweaty' (repeated) and its association with sexual abuse/assaults, etc, and why he would choose such a description in court.
Deception on this program was almost incessant and is from law enforcement, the DA, the defense, the accused, family members, etc. It is difficult to find a single person who was consistently reliable in language.
One defense attorney, however, was noted for his veracity, Dean Strang, that is, until it came time to affirm after the guilty verdict, that a killer was still on the loose. Here, he could not make a direct statement to buttress his partner's assertion that "absolutely" a killer was on the loose. It is a powerful moment for body language analysts as he was silent, looked down, and closed his eyes. Strang had spoken consistently with reliable language but here he was silent at a moment where it was expected he would respond to the journalist.
Andrew Coburn's statements to be analyzed as will the words of Tom Fassbender, an independent investigator who's words warrant analysis. These two provided statements rich for analysis.
The interviews are poorly conducted and contaminated the language of the teen. No legally sound, analytical interview was shown on the program.
Before specific analysis posted, please keep in mind, this is Statement Analysis, and the analysis will be limited to Coburn's own words and not whether or not something 'seems' suspicious. This will give indiction if he was truthful or deceptive, based upon his own words, under oath, regarding Steven Avery.
First, before looking at his words, what did you note regarding Coburn's testimony?
What do you think when he spoke?
Was he truthful, or was he deceptive in his testimony?
